This is a busy motel but the rammed earth walls make it quiet and comfortable, with nice seats outside each room to take in the desert feel. Very friendly staff and a free shuttle to the airport. We stay here a lot of business and recommend it highly.

Best option in Coober Pedy. The rooms are clean and spacious, with everything you need for a comfortable stay. I liked the Mud walls and each room has an outdoor table and chairs, great for morning coffee... The staff are friendly and helpful.

Stopped here overnight heading for Alice Springs. Very comfortable, tidy and clean. Above ground Mud buildings were well appointed and despite the cold, warm enough with the small heater in the room. Good comfortable beds.

Neither myself or my husband were excited in sleeping underground so this motel suited us. The staff were really friendly the rooms a reasonable size comfortable and really clean. No heating in the air conditioning but the heater supplied worked really well. Plenty of towels soaps etc. Would recommend this for an above ground motel walking distance to town. The... More

Our bus group really enjoyed the Mud Hut Motel. From the unique rammed earth walls featured around most rooms in the motel to the lovely evening meal and breakfast, Stacey and Jarrod were great hosts. The rooms were very comfortable and the showers warm.

The pictures on the website do not do this place justice. Our room was beautiful. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. Exceptionally clean, spacious, good sized kitchen which was well-equipped, comfortable living area with good lighting. We loved the character of the room, especially the mud-brick type walls. It was well-suited to this outback environment. Also, lovely artwork on... More

Centrally-located in the middle of town, Mud Hut Motel is comfortable, very clean and reasonably-priced. The wifi was probably the best we experienced across all of South Australia and the Northen Territory. Directly across the road from a Shell petrol station (which has it's own excellent steakhouse restaurant - true story!) and around the corner from Pizza Joe's and several... More

While the Mud Hut Motel is no five star establishment, it is clean and offers good value and excellent service. In a quiet location, close to the Main Street and not far to shops and places to eat. No lock up parking on site, however guests can park directly outside of their rooms which is very convenient and provides some... More

This was my second stay at the Mud Hut, the staff are really friendly. My room came equipped with a microwave, fridge, cutlery and crockery - which I wasn't expecting but was pleasantly surprised to see. The room is serviced daily, great shower and because the walls are rammed earth it's lovely and quiet. The hotel is just a short... More

We have stayed here 3 times now. This occasion we stayed in a two bedroom apartment. It has one separate toilet and one bathroom. The kitchen is very well equipped and everything in the apartment is spotlessly clean. We loved the free WiFi. The shower is fantastic and we would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.
